The Supreme Court did not Condone the Conduct when it Vacated the Virginia Governor's Conviction for Bribery

"There is no doubt that this case is distasteful; it may be worse than that. But our concern is not with tawdry tales of Ferrari's, Rolex's and ball gowns. It is instead with the broader legal implications of the government's boundless interpretation of the federal bribery statute. A more limited interpretation of the term "official act" leaves ample room for prosecuting corruption, while comporting with the text of the statute and the precedent of this Court."
